This guide draws on documentation and articles written by the R Core Team. The first version of the guide was heavily influenced by the Python Developer’s Guide.

Initial chapters of the guide were developed by Saranjeet Kaur Bhogal, in a project funded by the R Foundation, mentored by Heather Turner and Michael Lawrence. This initial version was upgraded in a Google Season of Docs 2022 project with Saranjeet Kaur Bhogal and Lluís Revilla Sancho working as technical writers managed by Nicolas Bennett and overseen by a Steering Committee including representatives from R Core and the wider R community.

This guide has benefited and continues to benefit from varied contributions by several contributors.
